  Information - PS5.0 Small Bodies and Dust

Event Information
The scope of this session covers all aspects of comets, asteroids and
dust, including Kuiper belt objects, meteors and dynamical modelling. You are
invited to present your recent results related to past and ongoing space missions
(Stardust, Deep Impact, Hayabusa/MUSES-C, Rosetta etc.), future space
instrumentation, observational studies of comets, asteroids and dust from
the ground and from space, including the recently observable bright
comets, laboratory simulation and modelling (e.g. of asteroidal regolith,
cometary ices and dust).

List of invitated contributions:

M. Broz: 'The thermal forces and torques changing the orbits and spins of small

M. Yoshikawa: 'Results on asteroid Itokawa from the Hayabusha mission'

M. A'Hearn: 'Deep Impact'

M. Kassalainen: 'Imaging the invisible solar spectrum: inverse
problems of asteroid photometry'

R. Srama: 'In-situ dust measurements with Cassini - Eight years of
experience with the Cosmic Dust Analyser'
